Provenance / HistoryThe work is one of a new series of works exploring consciousness as fundamentally physical ...and in all matter to a greater or lesser degree and, subject to morphic information field interaction (as described by Rupert Sheldrake, a Cambridge Bio-Chemist). The work uses ideas articulated by the Physicists Menas Kafatos and Robert Nadeau in their co authored book, "The Conscious Universe". The authors discuss the recent discoveries concerning a "non local" universe where particles which have had a relationship continued to influence their existing states even at enormous distances....and seem to no violate the speed of light.....outside space and time.....a remarkable new fact about observation, measurement and connectivity. These new works grow out of the Octopus Meditations completed in 2018 and predicated on the integrated nervous system of the Octopus...nine connected brains, one in the bulb and the other eight at the top of each tentacle.

Over the course of the 1970s and 80s, Kerns formed a close partnership with the Rosa Esman Gallery and exhibited ten solo shows there. Of his work in the late 1970s and early 80s, gallery coordinator Judith Stein says, “He works slowly, creating no more than ten large paintings a year. His media are acrylic, sand, and thread, the last used to stitch together sections of canvas. Often plywood or upsom board is used as support.” Listings wanted.
